earth dayEarth Day is Saturday, April 22, 2017. There are big and small ways that you can make a difference, whether it’s getting involved and joining the movement, giving to the cause, or spreading the word. The key is to start and take action. Learn what can you do to make a difference in your apartment community.

Earth Day Movie Night at Sierra Nevada

Join the Butte Environmental Council at the Sierra Nevada Big Room, for a screening of a series of short films focusing on environmental and sustainable education. The event is Friday, April 21, 2017 at 6 p.m. Free and open to the public! Get the details here.

Host a Lights Out Event

Encourage residents at your Chico apartment community to turn out their lights and unplug appliances for one hour and head over to the community room for activities and refreshments. Get the kids involved too by doing and Earth Day scavenger hunt.

Community Clean Up

Gather some neighbors and friends and pick an area around your apartment community to host a clean-up and pick up trash and debris. It could simply be a stretch of road, an empty field, or nearby park.

Organize a Hike

Chico California is home to beautiful Bidwell Park, so why not get outside and go for a hike, run, or leisurely walk. It’s a great alternative to using the fitness room at your Chico apartment.

Recycling Challenge

Challenge residents at your apartment complex to bring one bag of recyclables to the local recycling area; or host a donation event for clothing and small household items that can be taken to a local nonprofit such as The Arc Store or The Salvation Army.

Ride Your Bike

Chico is a bike-friendly town! Encourage residents to keep their cars parked and ride their bikes to work or school, even just for one day. Take it one step further and encourage them to pack their lunch too and coordinate a local place to meet for a sack lunch date.

Start Your Own Garden

You might think this can’t be a reality while living in a Chico apartment, but you can start your own small patio or balcony garden. It can simply be herbs or small pots used to grow berries, tomatoes or peppers. It can be very satisfying to grow the food you eat!

We’re lucky to be living in Chico – a place that cares about the environment, sustainability, and empowering the community to care about where we live, both on a local and global level. We encourage you to get involved and celebrate Earth Day at your Chico apartment complex.
